Hailing from Kansas City, stoner rock outfit Hyborian has released a video for ‘Maelstrom’—a track from the band’s debut album Hyborian Vol. I. The animated and bloodthirsty clip has been created by vocalist and guitarist Martin Bush.

The band collectively commented on the clip, “we had some down time during the cold months this winter, so Martin decided to learn how to do animation. This is the very first result of his efforts, a video for ‘Maelstrom.’  ‘Maelstrom’ tells the story of a mountaintop battle with an elder god, aided by The Traveller (a pivotal figure in all our songs). It features all original artwork and animation by Martin, and was incredibly fun to make.”

Watch the video for ‘Maelstrom’ below.
